This past week, U.S. President Donald Trump held a meeting with video game industry representatives, watchdog group representatives, lawmakers and lobbyists. For that meeting, a montage of extreme video game violence was crafted.
The meeting came after Trump suggested that video games may have played a part in the various mass shootings in the United States in recent years, despite there being no evidence that fantasy video-game violence correlates with real-world violence.
Understandably the meetings have been criticised as being a sideshow to the real issue of enacting meaningful gun-law reforms in the United States. Now, less than 24 hours after the White House uploaded said video to YouTube, the gory clip has gone viral and has been viewed more than 860,000 times.
In fact it now ranks as the White House’s No. 5 most-viewed video on YouTube since Trump took office, topping the video of his January 2017 inauguration. Games like “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2,” “Wolfenstein: The New Order,” “Dead by Daylight,” “Fallout 4” and “Sniper Elite 4” are all included in the clip which you can see below.
